Of course he is. He had an abysmal season last year. I don't see why he wouldn't?
I don’t understand how one goes from being so dominant to this. Dude throws close to 100 mph.
Ed Whitson Syndrome. AKA the Javy Vasquez Syndrome, Randy Johnson Syndrome, Carl Pavano Syndrome. Even Roger Clemens had problems adjusting to NY. Playing for the Mets may not be as pressure packed but it is NY and the pressure is palpable even with Met fans and the media that covers the Mets. Once he got off to that bad start it was a train wreck going downhill with an avalanche following him. Diaz may have been better off just "slipping" coming out of the shower and ending his season early last year.
